The vote was apparently unanimous. It’s wrong that any delegates from Florida will be seated, and it’s very unfair to Obama, his supporters, and the rest of the country. But since it almost undoubtedly won’t change the outcome, it had to be done to calm the complainers. The unanimous vote will likely quell any possibility of a Clinton appeal, at least.
Still waiting on results from the RBC in regards to Michigan. The reasonable guess is probably the 69-59 split.
Will update the Magic Number when possible.

Superdelegates, I know you’ve probably been waiting to let this process “play itself out” and only make your endorsement only after all the Primaries are held. Well, you’ve allowed the Party to become more and more split by your non-action, and in the past few days, we now have events like this: Florida delegates file lawsuit to get delegation seated. If you care one iota about keeping your Party together, if you have any inkling of a desire to win in November, it’s time to finally act to end this nonsense that is doing nothing but angering both sides.
Plus, if you act now, maybe all the delegates from Florida and Michigan could be seated as is anyway.
